TRYING TO INFORM THE HAWAIIAN PPL OF KAMUELA:

The Waiaka Bridge and the Kamulea Museum Again, government encroachment is threatening to destroy two important Waimea landmarks and further dilute and desecrate the rich history of the Hawaiian Peoples. At the intersection of Highways 250 and 19 stands the Historic Waiaka Bridge, currently scheduled for demolition in 2015 by the State of Hawaii. Built by Charles H. Will in 1932, it was the first bridge ever funded by federal money on Hawai’i Island. Coming at the cusp of the Great Depression and WWII, the bridge would serve as a vital link for both native and American military interests in the years to come, and it continues to this day. Directly alongside the bridge stands the Kamuela Museum, a labor of love and respect for the Hawaiian heritage and built by native locals Albert and Harriet Solomon in 1968. Albert’s part-Hawaiian mother was a descendant of King Kamehameha I, and his father was Arabic, Turkish and Jewish. Harriet Meyers Solomon was the great-great granddaughter of John Parker, of the world-famous Parker Ranch. The Kahunas had predicted to a young Albert that he would one day settle on land that had three mountains in sight, and he and Harriet felt the purchase of their land parcel in 1954 was “meant to be.” Until Albert’s death at age 95 in 2002, the museum served as an amazing repository of native lore and history, and was instrumental in educating generations of the local people in their rich heritage. Historically, at least three Heiau are … [Read more...]

Roseannearchy against The Devil: ‘the end':

The End Have you noticed how every tale about a little girl or boy on an adventure in a mysterious place, where it’s never quite clear if things are real or imagined, seems to return home with a lesson learned? I guess it’s fitting that mine should, too. Whether Doro- thy comes back from Oz and decides there’s no place like home or Alice comes to her senses with vivid memories of Mad Hatters and Cheshire cats (whatever that meant), the story is always about self-discovery. It was like that for me, too. There was always a twist or turn to amaze me—what with Hollywood, big-time TV, running around the world and sometimes not knowing if I was running toward something or away from it. You may be surprised that somebody doing all that running can stay so pleasingly plump and then some. But I’ve had quite a voyage—one that was as crazy and exciting as money and a ticket to Tinseltown can provide. Although I have to say that the best part, when I look back, was probably the leg of the journey before I got rich and famous. It was the breaking-out part that was the best—the part that started with me taking the saucy little jokes I cooked up at my kitchen table and serving them up to the yahoos in the bars, the lesbians in the church basements, and all the rest of the folks who looked into the funhouse mirror of my humor and either laughed or looked away. And then, finally, there I was, sitting onstage beside the great Johnny Carson—the wizard who sat in front of the curtain. That … [Read more...]
